The Truth Is…
Bill Gates is more Godlike than God.
Bill Gates, through the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation is actively trying to reduce the human suffering felt throughout the world. Warren Buffett has pledged his billions to the foundation. Both of them have embarked on a campaign to solicit other billionaires to be more aware of the human condition.
The “tag line” from the foundation:
TOGETHER WE WILL APPLY NEW THINKING TO BIG PROBLEMS
FIND SOLUTIONS FOR PEOPLE WITH THE MOST URGENT NEEDS.
From the brochure:
Our foundation is teaming up with partners around the world to take on some tough problems: extreme poverty and poor health in developing countries, the failures of America’s education system. We focus on only a few issues because we think that’s the best way to have great impact, and we focus on these issues in particular because we think they are the biggest barriers that prevent people from making the most of their lives.
Here’s the link to the foundation:
Where is God?
On the other hand, God, whose last documented appearance was approximately 3500 years ago when he was tormenting Job in order to win a bet with Satan, has totally ignored human suffering. He has allowed human suffering to increase and has made no attempt to reduce human suffering, extreme poverty, poor health, birth defects, mental retardation ad infinitum. Death and suffering caused by disease, natural disasters, et. al. is increasing as a result of God’s indifference to mankind’s suffering.
Shouldn’t God try to be more like Bill Gates and Warren Buffett?
